8:00 – 3:30 VISIBILITY

  • Backed up the current database – slight change
  • Making font sizes look at the screen resolution, rather than just being in pixels, since the retina display makes 20 pixels look like bacteria.
  • I think I’m actually done with GesturePieChart!
  • Nice color editor:
  • Looking at the GWT book.
    • In addition to event handling, GWT has a Message Bus which allows for more decoupled data transfer.
    • UIBinder XML = MXML?
    • Java object serialization. How is typing handled?
    • Updating my Eclipse Google plugin

  • Tried to contact our test guy by phone and email, no luck yet.
  • Cleaning up GesturePieChart and GesturePieChartEvent
  • Spent quite a bit of time digging through styles to find how to make things look best together. Made a new view called StyleBrowser to seve work for the next time.
  • Dong gave me a new disk. We’ll all meet on site to deploy and talk to Chris.

How to get all the currently defined styles (from

 var arr:Array = styleManager.selectors;
 var selector:String;
 var cssStyle:CSSStyleDeclaration;
 var obj:Object;

 var key:String;
 for each (selector in arr){
     cssStyle = styleManager.getStyleDeclaration(selector);
     obj = new cssStyle.defaultFactory();
     for (key in obj) {
         trace(selector+": "+key+" = "+obj[key]);

  • Dong found a cool thing that uses GWT instead of Flex:
